In the hustle and bustle of modern workplaces, it’s easy to forget the backbone of every organisation, it’s employees…
Employees are the competitive advantage for many. The driving force behind innovation and of course the heartbeat of your internal culture.
This year, Employee Appreciation Day lands on the 1st of March! This day holds a perfect opportunity to pause, reflect, and express gratitude to the individuals who contribute to the success of organisations.
A simple pause to acknowledge and say thank you or even a recorded video message from senior leadership, can create a positive impact on the day.
However, if possible it is far more impactful to go beyond words to acknowledge the dedication and commitment of teams. Which can be done through a variety of means, like providing a social drop in lunch, additional time off, or training opportunities.
One powerful way to do so, is through the thoughtful use of branded products and packs. These not only convey appreciation but also serve as tangible reminders of an employee’s value to the company.
Here are three examples of how you can leverage branded products to support your efforts in recognising your employees this year!
1. Customised Employee Appreciation Packs
Consider creating a customised employee appreciation day pack! Tailored to the preferences and interests of your employees, and of course your budget! These packs can include a variety of branded items such as coffee mugs, water bottles, notebooks, and desk items, adorned with your company logo and a heartfelt message of gratitude.
Additionally, you can create a blended pack with additions of chocolate, snacks, gift cards, or themed products to make the gesture even more meaningful. By curating these thoughtful gift packs, you can demonstrate that you value each of your employees and really provide a buzz around the day!
2. Branded Wellness Packages
In today’s working environment, prioritising employee wellbeing is more important than ever. Show your appreciation for your team members by gifting them branded wellness packages designed to promote self-promo and relaxation.
These packages could include items such as, an aromatherapy candle, yoga books or mindfulness journals. All adorned with your company’s logo and accompanied by a message of care and celebration of employees. By investing in employee wellbeing, you not only demonstrate appreciation but also foster an organisational culture focused on wellness.
3. Virtual Team Appreciation Events
In an increasingly digital world, virtual appreciation events offer a creative way to celebrate Employee Appreciation Day. While still fostering a sense of camaraderie among remote or distributed teams. Consider hosting a virtual gathering where employees can come together to participate in games and or team-building activities.
As part of the event, you can surprise attendees with e-vouchers that they can redeem for branded merchandise or branded packs of their choice. By incorporating branded elements into the virtual experience, you reinforce a sense of belonging in the organisation, even in a remote setting.
